Department of History at UW Oshkosh

The opportunities are limitless with the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Department of History. UWO history graduates go on to become researchers, archivists, editors, teachers, congressional aides, lawyers, pursue graduate degrees and more.

As a history major or minor, students at UWO gain a better understanding of current political, cultural and economic issues through a foundation in history. Students learn how to think critically, examine complex problems and develop writing skills.

Advising for History majors

Any student with a History Major (including double majors), who has earned 12 credits of History, is assigned a Faculty Advisor from the History Department by the Academic Department Associate. As a History major, you will meet with your departmental advisor in every subsequent semester until you graduate. You will not be able to register for classes until that meeting each semester with your advisor occurs.

Each semester, your advisor will check your work completed toward your degree, review the number of credits and courses you need to fulfill your major and make suggestions and recommendations for courses to take. Your academic advisor is here to assist you with any questions as well as discuss possible career paths.
